SPECIAL STITCHES

Fdc- Foundation Double Crochet - tutorial provided
Ch 4 (counts as the first fdc),Yarn over (YO) and insert hook in 4th chain from hook, YO and pull up loop (3 loops on hook), YO and pull through 1 loop creating a chain st, (this is an important step but easy to forget), YO and pull through first two loops on hook (two loops remaining), YO and pull through last two loops on hook. This completes the second fdc (remember your ch-4 counted as the first fdc). To stitch the next fdc, YO and insert the hook into the chain made in the 2nd fdc and re-peat from until the desired sts are achieved

YO with the loop so that the hook is behind the loop. Insert the hook into the first st of row. Compete a normal dc (YO and draw through st (3 loops on hook). YO and draw through first two loops on hook. YO and draw through last two loops on hook).
